A Thai restaurant on East Franklin

True Thai's original chef worked at a 1,200 seat restaurant in Thailand. All of the dishes are made from scratch with fresh ingredients, and unlike many Thai restaurants in the US, the food has not been Americanized.

Note that consistent reports suggest that all of the curries at True Thai are not vegetarian as they're made with fish sauce or shrimp paste despite what your server may tell you.

Fantastic food, but the slowest service ever. We had to wait forever to order, get our food, get refills, etc.

I wanted to love this restaurant. Having searched far and wide for a great green curry this restaurant gave me great hope at first. However, I was extremely disappointed to find that many of the staff mislead customers about whether the food is actually vegan. You may be told on the phone you are ordering food without fish sauce only to find your requests ignored. I wouldn't risk it.
